  • CCHS Students, you all qualify for the P-EBT Food Assistance Benefits for Families.  The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer Program (P-EBT) food assistance benefits will go to Michigan families with students ages 0-26 that are eligible for Free or Reduced-Price School Meals. This includes families currently receiving Food Assistance Program benefits, as well as those not currently enrolled in the program. No application is necessary for eligible families to receive P-EBT benefits.  If you have any questions, please contact 1-833-905-0028, you may also go to this website for FAQ

https://www.michigan.gov/…/0,4615,7-140-66254_99536—,00.h…

If student was already receiving SNAP benefits, they will automatically receive the P-EBT benefits on their card.

If student is eligible based on a Free or Reduced-Price Meal the pre-loaded P-EBT card will come in the mail and will be in the oldest school-aged child’s name, not the parent’s name. Keep the card for ongoing benefits you may receive. MDDHS is processing cards in batches thru mid-May.

The combined benefit amount for March/April is $193.80 per child and will be available by the end of April.

The combined benefit amount for May/June is $182.40 per child and will be available by the end of May.

    1. For now, email or text Mrs. Reid your height and weight and she can place the orders. However, we are not sure Caps and Gowns are essential, so we don’t know when they will be delivered.  jreid@calhounhs.org or text to 517-745-6880
